Best Things in Life – Featured Stamper Challenge #802

This week’s Featured Stamper is mschoener! Maggie is such a delight and I really enjoyed browsing her gallery. I landed on this card because I loved the sentiment.

I’ve also combined with Barbara’s CC900 (CC845) Color Challenge colors with metallic for dessert. The metallic convinced me to foil my sentiment–it doesn’t take much. I finally jumped on the foiling bandwagon and I’m really enjoying the ride. I created the sentiment on my computer, printed it out with my brand new Brother laser printer and foiled it in gold.

I don’t have that sentiment stamp, so I had to create it myself.  If you’d like to use this on your cards just right click on the image below and save it to your computer.  If you use it, I’d love to see it, so please tag me @cardsbyjennifrann and #thestampingactuary.

This funny cat was on my to-do list. There is a fish bowl for him to be looking at, but I went with a cupcake to match the sentiment. I’ve colored this chunky cat to match my friend, Liz’s cat. It’s heading her way for her birthday. I realized after I took the picture that I forgot to add the Stickles sprinkles on the cupcake.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Tacos Fall Apart – Featured Stamper #779

Today’s Featured Stamper is leslielarkin. Leslie has such a wonderful gallery, I wanted to CASE all her fun cards. She uses DSP so well. I couldn’t decide between using Witty-Cisms by leslielarkin at Splitcoaststampers and Whale Done by leslielarkin at Splitcoaststampers so I combined the two. 

       

You know I can’t resist a good pun, so they both spoke to me.  I started by stamping black and white tacos with little pink cheeks to make my own DP. Then I stamped and colored the focal taco. I chose to use some fun bright DP behind my black and white tacos in honor of Leslie’s fabulous work.  It took me a while to decide between “Let’s taco ’bout it” and “Let’s taco ’bout your birthday.”  In fact, I had the party hats all ready to go for this card.  But once I decided on this inside sentiment, “Let’s taco ’bout it” won out.

This is made with my very own font that I designed using calligraphr.com.  If you’d like to use this on your cards just right click on the image and save it to your computer.  If you use it, I’d love to see it, so please tag me @cardsbyjennifrann and #thestampingactuary.
